Disney Princesses are among some of the most popular characters in the company's history, earning many millions at the box office and even more in merchandise sales. Since the first Disney Princess, Snow White, made her debut in 1937, 11 more Princesses have joined the official lineup. The official lineup includes princesses from around the world and a variety of time periods. However, against popular belief, "Frozen's" Queen Elsa and Princess Anna are not included in the official lineup because of the film's massive success. Instead, they've spawned their own franchise, as not to impede on the sales of the other princesses. Take a look at tattoos depicting the 12 official Disney Princesses in the gallery below, then let us know your thoughts on these tattoos in the comments section on social media.
